Alan Jackson — The Blues Man (A Tribute To Hank Williams, Jr.) lyrics

He's just a singer a natural born guitar ringer kind of a clinger to sad old songs
He's not a walk-behinder he's a new note finder
But his name's a reminder of a blues man that's already gone
So he started drinkin' took some things that messed up his thinkin'
He was sure sinkin' when she came along
He was alone in the spot light not too much left in sight
She changed all that one night when she sang him this song
Hey baby I love you hey baby I need you
Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me you're some kind of (macho) of man
You've wasted so much of your life runnin' through the dark nights
Let me shine a little love light down on that blues man
[ guitar ]
He got so sick from speedin' all the things they said he was needin'
If he was to keep on pleasin' all of his fans
He got cuffed on dirt roads he got sued over no shows
She came and took all that old load down off that blues man
And he sang hey baby I love you too hey baby I need you
Hey baby I do get tired of this traveling band
I'm over forty years old now nights would be cold now
If you hadn't stuck it out with this blues man
He's over forty years old now nights would be so cold now
If she hadn't hung around with that blues man
[ guitar - steel - guitar ]
